Smartphone manufacturer Huawei’s subsidiary brand Honor has officially announced the launch date for its midrange device – Honor 7X, via the company’s Weibo page. Honor 7X is the successor to the popular Honor 6X, which was launched back in late 2016. Honor 7X is set to launch on October 11, in China.
[Quick Update: The actual tagline goes like this – “Want to see farther than ordinary people? Higher? Wider? Everywhere is your world”]
The company posted a teaser image along with the tagline which translates to – “Want to see farther than ordinary people? Higher? Wider your head and the world”. The tagline doesn’t make much sense literally as it was directly translated from Chinese using Google Translate, but these words indicate the presence of an Entireview display with 18:9 aspect ratio.
According to recent rumors, Honor 7X is expected to sport a 5.5-inch fullHD+ (2160 x 1080) display, powered by Huawei’s HiSilicon Kirin 670 64-bit octa-core processor along with 4GB of RAM and 32/64GB of internal storage. It is rumored to feature a 12MP dual camera setup at the back and will run on EMUI 5.1 based on Android 7.1 Nougat. Leaked pricing indicates that the 32GB storage variant will cost CNY 1499 (Rs. 14,750) and the 64GB variant will cost CNY 1799 (Rs. 17,750).
For a quick recap, Honor 6X was launched in India, in January 2017 at a price of Rs. 12,999 and Rs. 15,999 for the 3GB + 32GB and 4GB + 64GB variants respectively.
